Honours BA in Visual and Critical Studies

The Honours BA in Visual and Critical Studies offers an alternative track for students interested in a career in visual arts and/or preparation for graduate study. You can pursue in-depth academic study in the creative environment of Canada’s largest art and design university, sharing selected classes with studio majors, but following a distinct sequence of courses, seminars and research in Visual and Critical Studies.

Core liberal arts & science courses provide BA students with a strong history and theory background, and with a range of critical methods for exploring the cultural meaning of art, design and media as they relate to social, economic, political and material circumstances within Canada and globally.
